    Yeah Drops of Jupiter has to be one of the best songs ever. I also like all of Linkin Parks songs.

    Of all time...

    "With or Without You" by U2.

    Reminds me of my ex-girlfriend. Long story, very painful.

    I also like "Hangin' By A Moment" by LifeHouse. Same reason, I guess.

    there are too many songs to even try and figure out which one is the best of all time....for me it all depends on my mood what I want to hear, so I don't have a *favorite* - but even once in a while there is a song I can listen to 5 times in a row really really loud :D

    I think one of the parts in one of Beethoven's symphonies is my overall favourite song... Either it's the Eroica or the Pastorale symphonie... I'm not quite sure.

    As Duke said, it depends on a lot of things when it comes to deciding which song that is my favourite. I have a lot of favourite songs in different genres.

    You can go through the Red and Blue Albums by the Beatles and it's funny because not only are the songs on those albums the best by the Beatles, but a great number of them are also some of the best songs of all time.

    She Loves You...
    Ticket to Ride...
    I Feel Fine...
    Day Tripper...
    In My Life...
    Strawberry Fields Forever...
    A Day in the Life...
    Penny Lane...
    Hello, Goodbye...
    Here Comes the Sun...
    Let it Be...

    *pant*

    Octopus' Garden...
    A Hard Day's Night...
    Can't Buy Me Love...
    Back in the USSR...
    Revolution...
    Taxman...
    Eleanor Rigby...
    She Said, She Said...
    Tomorrow Never Knows...
    We Can Work it Out...

    *pant*

    I Want to Hold Your Hand...
    Yesterday...
    Help!...
    In My Life...
    Paperback Writer...
    Yellow Submarine...
    Sgt. Pepper...
    With a Little Help From My Friends...
    I am the Walrus...
    Hey Jude...

    Most well-known bands/artists have at least one great, memorable song. Many have more than one. The really good ones have a handful or two. The Beatles have, like, 50.

    My favorite song... Hmm, I don't really have any true 'favorite' but I like Russian Christmas Music by Alfred Reed, The song Summon the Heroes by John Williams is also a good trumpet piece :D

    As for everything else... It's a trance song recorded from somewhere, but it was DJ Tiesto live @energy 2000...

    That's it for me... I don't really listen to modern rock, mostly because all of the radio stations in my area just play hard-rock, or nsync or rap...

    I know some of you will probably take this the wrong way, but I love showtunes and all that great "Big Band" music from the Sinatra era.

    Give me Ol' Blue Eyes, or Harry Connick Jr., croonin' a classic tune and I'm set.

    :D

    of all the music i mentioned i like, bubblegum is near the bottom of my list of favorites, but there is some good stuff;

    christina aguilera's genie in a bottle is a good one

    i don't think there is too much to brittney spears

    spice girls movie was actually pretty good...sporty spice has a great voice

    i am not into ricky martin, but that other male pop singer from puerto rico is good

    n'sync is not as good as boyz to men was, but they have more soul than new kids on the block did

    if offspring and red hot chilli peppers count as bubblegum pop, then they are on my list, too

    excuse me for some of the misspellings if there are any...i only hear these artists and don't have any of their CDs

    Marc Anthony??

    I have to admit to owning (yes, owning) both n'sync albums. I think they have great musical talent; their acapella stuff rocks.

    Offspring and RHCP definitely went pop...but not bubblegum.:D
